$450 for a brand new Xbox One, take it, or wait?

#1Jimm3rF3rdettePosted 1/15/2014 11:40:04 PM
This guy on craigslist is selling a brand new / sealed xbox one for $450. He is even willing to let me open it to ensure everything is factory sealed.

Good deal, or should I wait for the slight possibility that Microsoft will announce a $399 kinect-less bundle?

But to be fair, even if there was a $399 kinect-less bundle, it would cost me $440 with tax, which is nearly the same as this $450 that comes with the kinect.

The PS4 that I am returning soon cost me $440 with tax, so I essentially could be getting an xbox one for the same price as a ps4.

What do you guys think?

You have pretty much justified your purchase in your own post. If you buy from the dude, then basically you got Kinect for $10 more if there ever is a Kinect-less version.

Craigslist deal? What do I think? I think he's going to shoot you and take your $450.

true, true, sounds like a steal.

I also save $100. Buying it from a retailer would cost $500 , after tax would put it at $550.

I've done plenty of transactions via CL. I always meet in a public place and so far I have never had an issue as far as getting robbed, etc. The only issue I did run into was a dude selling me a RROD 360 but that was my fault not having him meet me at a gamestop for it to be tested.

well the guy seems legit. i just talked to him on the phone. also, why would he let me open the xbox to ensure it is factory sealed if he was trying to scam me in any way, shape, or form?

i'll be able to tell if he simply repackaged it after using it.

I'd be for it except for the fact you're returning the ps4 to get it. I think you will regret that decision but it sounds like you've already made up your mind. I would hook the console up just to ensure it works, sealed or not
